Prof Valsamma Eapen, Infant, Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist – The Neurobiology of ADHD

Professor Valsamma Eapen MBBS., FRCPsych., FRANZCP., PhD

Infant, Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist at Developmental Paediatrics

The Neurobiology of ADHD

This session will trace the pathophysiology of ADHD from genes to behaviour with a particular focus on the genetic and neurobiological factors that underpin the translation of biological vulnerability to clinically significant symptoms and behaviours.

Evidence from the literature in relation to the links between neuronal substrates and circuitry to cognition and behaviour will also be discussed. This in turn will be linked to the general principles of management including pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions.
